Where Have They Taken Him?
Music and Lyrics by Roger Linder
Lyrical theme by Bethany Carlson
Mary Magdalene
Where have they taken him?
Let us ask this man.
Did he rise again?
Wasn't that his plan?

What have they done with him?
Has he gone away?
Where is he today?
Tell us right away!

The one you seek has left here
There's no reason to remain.
He told you he'd return to you.
And now he's not in pain.

Look where they had lain him, all you see are bloody clothes
Time is now to be rejoicing, gone are all your woes!

Go, now, tell all what you've seen, remind them what he said.
This is the fulfilled prophecy: he is no longer dead.

Mary Magdalene
It's a miracle! Can it be true?
Is this the thing he told us he would do?
I would rejoice! I'd raise my voice, out loud I'd shout!
Believe? But, yes, I must confess there is doubt.

Yet you ask me to accept this story.
I'm still uncertain, can't be sure.
When will I see and once more hold my Lord?

What to do? I'm so confused!
The words you're saying must be refused!

Where have they taken him?
Has he gone away?
Where is he today?
I must know right away!

Luke 24: 1-10

1 On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2 They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3 but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4 While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5 In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, "Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6 He is not here; he has risen! Remember how he told you, while he was still with you in Galilee: 7 `The Son of Man must be delivered into the hands of sinful men, be crucified and on the third day be raised again.'" 8 Then they remembered his words. 9 When they came back from the tomb, they told all these things to the Eleven and to all the others. 10 It was Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Mary the mother of James, and the others with them who told this to the apostles.
